900 sheep, 2 buffaloes sacrificed

More than 900 sheep and two buffaloes were sacrificed in Goddess Dyamavva's fair on Tuesday.

The fair is held once in five years at Malakanamaradi village in the taluk.

Two buffaloes have been sacrificed and offered to the goddess in the wee hours of Tuesday. Later, at least two to five sheep were sacrificed from each house in the village.

It is said the massive animal sacrifice could not be prevented though some village youths had tipped off the police department in advance.

Animal lover M N Sharanesh Patil alleged that animals were sacrificed in the presence of the police.
